A few years ago, I worked part-time for Mr. Soliz at Uncle Wade's. One day the beer delivery man arrived. Mr. Soliz was not there. The delivery man brought in the beer order and I signed for it. The delivery man stayed for a few minutes making chit chat. Then, he asked me how my dad was doing. My dad? I was puzzled because the delivery man had not known my father and my father had passed away several years ago. I asked him what he meant about his question about my dad. The delivery man, whom I had known for several years, explained that he thought Mr. Soliz was my father. Later, I told Mr. Soliz about this incident. He got a good laugh out of it. Then, I asked him if by chance he wanted to adopt me. Mr. Soliz said "no".



Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free

To follow the path God made for me.

I took His hand when I heard Him call.

I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,

To love, to laugh, to work or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way,

For I found peace at last, that day.

If my parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembering joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with hearts of sorrow.

My wish for you is the hope of tomorrow.

My life’s been full, I’ve savored much,

Good friends, good times,

a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed much too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me,

God wants me now --- He’s set me free.
